QUOTE OF THE DAY

“It was the pure Language of the World. It required no explanation, just as the universe needs none as it travels through endless time. What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life, and that, with no need for words, she recognized the same thing. He was more certain of it than of anything in the world. He had been told by his parents and grandparents that he must fall in love and really know a person before becoming committed. But maybe people who felt that way had never learned the universal language. Because, when you know that language, it’s easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you, whether it’s in the middle of the desert or in some great city. And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one’s dreams would have no meaning.”

– Paulo Coelho

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Love like rain, can nourish from above, drenching couples with a soaking joy. But sometimes under the angry heat of life, love dries on the surface and must nourish from below, tending to its roots keeping itself alive.”

– Paulo Coelho

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Love is only a word, until we decide to let it possess us with all its force. Love is only a word, until someone arrives to give it meaning. Don’t give up. Remember, it’s always the key on the key ring that opens the door.”

– Paulo Coelho

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“True love is when you get used to a person, and you begin to be completely dependent on them. Now you think about him for three hours and can’t forget them for two minutes. If they’re not there, you feel like an addict who can’t get a fix. And just as addicts steal and humiliate themselves to get what they need, you’re willing to do anything for love.”

– Paulo Coelho

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.” 

– Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“When we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side. And yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left! How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly? Life moves very fast. It rushes from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds.”

– Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“This is what we call love. When you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there’s no need at all to understand what’s happening, because everything happens within you.”

– Paulo Coelho

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”

– Paulo Coelho
